How to Remove Super Glue from Car Paint?

Well, some ******* at sacred heart university took my mirror and pulled it so hard the opposite way that it cracked. Theres no visible damage to the front or back of the mirror and the mirror itself wasnt cracked, just the part where the mirror housing rotates on its motor. Anyway, i see that everythings still working so i got some super glue and put itin the cracks. Drove around a bit and all was good except i come to find out some of it dripped onto my right door !

Is there anyway to remove it?

Try to use your fingernails.Maybe some type of solvent like laquer thinner or nail polish remover.If its a small spot Ive used a fresh razor blade perpendicular to the paint to scrape it off.Then wetsand and buff the scratches out.

No, its like a long line thats 2mm thick

its like 16 inches long.. :[ going straight down the passanger seat door.

I dont want to damage the paint. Anyone know a solution? Ive heard of acetone but i hear it can take the paint off with it.
Should i try isopropyl alcohol 50/50 with water?

That removed tree sap and i mean crazy glue is only a little bit stickier than that crap.

Will not work on super-glue...

I would think that if you can lift one end of it, it should peel right off the smooth paint...

I would NEVER touch your car paint with Acetone, it has a history of reacting poorly with certain chems and coatings.

try a little laquer thinner on a white window towel... some people will tell you this will mess up the paint, as long as you don't go crazy you'll be alright... don't know if you know what Cosmoline is but it's a rust preventative usually sprayed on cars for the trip over on the boat, it's sprayed off at the port and the "drips" are usually handled by the dealer before delivery... they use laquer thinner.... when that stuff dries on a car for a long time... it's worse than glue!
